What other lawyers say about Rick Troutman:

Rick Troutman is one of the best and most ethical attorneys you could ever find to handle your case. I’ve known him for many years…actually since law school.

He is extremely knowledgeable, ethical, compassionate and well-respected throughout the community. A terrific person and lawyer. – Mark Nejame (See on AVVO)

I endorse Rick Troutman. I have know Rick for more than 25 years. He is among the most respected and effective personal injury attorneys in Florida. I have referred him cases in the past, and the clients have always reported back not only their great satisfaction with the results he was able to achieve for them, but also their appreciation for the courtesy, compassion and personal attention he provided to them and their families while the cases were proceeding through the system. – Warren Lindsey (See on AVVO)

I strongly endorse this lawyer. Rick and I were prosecutors together at the State Attorney’s Office in Orlando. When we left and went into private practice I went into criminal law and Rick went into personal injury law. I have been referring 100% of our PI cases to Rick since that time. Virtually every client that we have referred to Rick has been extremely happy with his results. Virtually all the feedback our clients have given us has been extremely positive. Therefore, we continue to refer 100% of our PI cases to Rick. His results are outstanding. Rick is extremely diligent, hard-working, conscientious, open-minded and intelligent. He is very patient and highly professional in the way he handles his caseload and other attorneys. Rick is always well-prepared, very respectful to members of the court and opposing counsel, always represents himself in a highly professional manner, and is a “genuine” and sincere person. Rick is an awesome person and lawyer. – Neal McShane (See on AVVO)

I worked for Rick Troutman as an attorney for about eight years. I watched Rick try a variety of cases to Central Florida juries, and represent clients at mediation. Ricks is an excellent trial attorney because people, and juries, trust him. He has that personality in which people feel a natural and comfortable since of confidence and trust in him. Rick is also skilled at getting excellent results at mediation. Since most cases settle at mediation, you want to hire an attorney that is skilled at presenting your case at mediation, and has excellent negotiation skills. Rick is very clever at getting great results at mediation, which benefit his clients due to lower costs and much lower stress and hassle. Lawyers do not really brag about mediation skills, but being a lawyer who gets excellent results at mediation is critical as many cases settle in mediation. Rick has never had to advertise as his reputation and satisfied clients enable him to attract an excellent clientele. – Brett Bressler (See on AVVO)
